Fear of Gord; Thinking outside the box with Nicola Methven & Mark Jefferies; SQUARE EYES.

Byline: with Nicola Methven & Mark Jefferies

GORDON Ramsay says he "freaked out" his teenage kids by making them watch his new documentary in a bid to stop them taking drugs.

ITV's two-part series Ramsay On Cocaine, starting tomorrow, sees the telly chef follow police, dealers and drug makers to reveal a trail of criminality, cruelty and death.

Ramsay, 50, said of his children: "Watching their faces, seeing cocaine being made, was shocking.

"I'm not putting the fear of god into them, but when the sulphuric acid with the battery acid and the cement powder were doused in gasoline, and then the alkalines were stripped from those leaves and this clear water produced, it freaked them out. This is drug education and it's important. They were shocked."

In the shows, Gordon travels to South and Central America where he witnesses the "cooking" through which the drug is made while meeting assassins and smugglers.

Back in the UK, Gordon joins police looking to catch coke-taking drug-drivers, sees the arrest of couriers on their way to a deal and handles 30 kilos of freshly confiscated cocaine at a police testing lab.
